Solution :-

In the case of insects, the exchange of gas takes place through a huge network of tubes known collectively because of the tracheal system. The tiny openings which are present on the edges of an insect's body are called stigmas. Oxygen-rich air enters through the spiracles. The spiracles are connected to the network of the tubes. Oxygen enters into the windpipe from the spiracles. From here, oxygen diffuses into the body cells. The movement of CO2 follows the other path. CO2 from the body's cells first enters the windpipe then leaves the body through the spiracles.
